OMGosh, I hate photobucket. Made me lose this post twice! :evil: So, third writing of this post ...

Prelim tastings of OTTI 14 Hakoniwado Shincha from Yame from our member Xell. I think this is going to be a very memorable OTTI round.

First was 88 Night which had a wonderful aroma and flavor.

Next up, Botan. Incredible sweet aroma wafted up to greet us. The flavor coupled with the aroma is really amazing.

Unfortunately I cannot really say more at this time due to the tasting. However you can read about the tasting and join us here, there are still openings available!

Drinking leftovers from the day, been plying my friend with tea for two days now. So, among other things I have a bit of genmaicha going.

Morning Crane Tea Jungjak for a morning pick me up. Korean tea holds up quite well to being brewed grandpa style in a big bowl.

FYI, you want to use the BB code version of the 'share' link on your flickr photos, so we can see this

Cool cup. Looks like a piece of rock, sculpted just for tea.

Today, a couple of sessions with Kai Hua Long Ding from Norbu. It's not Long Jing, but it's pleasant and green, and the delicate yellow-green liquor works beautifully in Shyrabbit's deep blue Nuka glazed cup with a crackling white interior.

Kikyou from Hakoniwado and OTTI 14 and Kirameki from O-Cha and OTTI 13 ... "prelim tastings" ... I might continue with these two prelim tastings til 2013! Both are great shincha and different from each other as night and day.

Houryoku fukamushi Shincha from Den's to start the TeaDay.

Deciding on the next tea. It is great having multiple choices from multiple vendors ... but choosing can be soooo hard!!!

Spring 2012 An Ji Bai Cha. I found it to be middle of the road. No major highlights, but no detractors either. Nonetheless, quite enjoyable. I haven't done a camera dump yet, but it looks very similar to this right here:
